Ok, I think we are once again rehashing a previous thread.  The (spurious)
Rcpp warning you saw:

   Warning message:
   The following packages are referenced using Rcpp::depends attributes 
   however are not listed in the Depends, Imports orLinkingTo fields of the 
   package DESCRIPTION file: RcppEigen

has AFAICR been fixed in the GitHub (but not yet the CRAN version).

Did you by chance use the CRAN version?  Your email didn't say...
